Tweezer” 11.3.96 II, Gainesville, FL

    Looking for a pair to each of the jones beach shows

    AC got pulled out from under me for a bullshit wedding, and the retards at time Warner think my whole building has a wiring problem

    I don’t trust my iPhone for such important moments

    Luckily I have faith in the No BBer Left Behind ethos around here

    What’s a tour without some ticket clusterfucks huh?

  2. Multibeast Says:

    No luck on the AV presale. Got pavs for sat and lawns for sun through the lottery. I am happy with the pavs for sat but yeah….getting lawns thru the lottery is pretty lame. Now I gotta find some sucka to buy em and upgrade my own tix.

    The Denver RH show the other night was really really good.

  3. Kaveh Says:

    Ticket needs:

    Alpine: both nights (x2)
    Worcester: both nights (x1) — maybe.

    Tomorrow will be busy.

  4. Jtran Says:

    CBS online is locking me out from streaming the KSU game at halftime of the first one, as I didn’t purchase their pay to watch thing this year. Is this new?

  5. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    @jtran
    yes. the games on cable (TNT, TruTV) you have to give proof of cable subscription or pay $3.99 for the access. Games on CBS will stream free and easy.

  6. Kaveh Says:

    @Jtran:

    The only online free streams via CBS are the games being aired on CBS. If you want to watch all the games; you have to pay the $4, which is less than a pint of beer, so it isn’t bad at all.

  7. DukeOfLizards Says:

    @DrP

    I think my crew and I for set for the JBs, and I too have been a victim of the TWC pseudo-monopoly, so I’ll do my best to lend a hand.

    Time Warner is worse than fracking.

  8. Jtran Says:

    Dang, that’s rough. I’m more listening than watching. Any thoughts on site to stream the audio that would be free?

  9. dorn76 Says:

    Appears Live Nation selling 2 day passes for JB along with the 3 days for SPAC.

    Any idea how this works? Same seat?

  10. Jtran Says:

    What a bad question…just click on “radio” and you can listen no problem (same window as the video)

  11. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    @jtran
    you can stream audio through Slacker Radio app on android for free or else try searching for ncaa radio schedule to see what stations with online streams will have it

  12. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Thanks Duke!! Let me know how it goes…

  13. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    @ T3 used your guidance.

    Thx.

  14. dorn76 Says:

    let’s – go – ashe – ville

  17. lumpyhead Says:

    tickets are complicated…

  18. dorn76 Says:

    Can a 3 day pass be split up? As in, do you get a separate ticket for each night?

  19. dusty Says:

    Bruce is a hella good bball player. Shot a couple of hops with him backstage.

  20. bhizzle Says:

    “2012 is the year for Cuyahoga”

    ^something I selfishly did not want to hear

    much rather hear

    “2012 is the year for SPAC”

  21. halcyon Says:

    Just came back from my quickest jog ever. Thank you Red Rocks 96 Mike’s, Llama, Weekapaug for getting me through. 3 miles in 35 minutes. For someone who has always been on the “husky” side of things I feel pretty good about that.

  22. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    How many regulars here have paid twice for tickets?

    i.e. ptbm’ed lawns and bought pavs through another channel at a later point in time.

    Would you like to not have to go this route? Would you like to be able to obtain the tickets you need the first time in a decent section for the nights you need? Maybe you are maturing and have no need for the hustle in the lot? Are you paying over face? How much per ticket? Would you like to not have to do this?

    There is a solution

  23. kurt } indy Says:

    Hey bb, can’t decide if I should go to AC and VA, hitting up all midwest plus spending a week in CO in april a week in carribbean in may and moving west in july, I guess these are good problems though my wallet says otherwise, oh phish
